I'm glad I live in Indiana after reading this.
The thing is it is titled "The Truth About Guns" & it is nothing about the truth.
In my opinion there is no reason to live in a state like that, everyone in Cal. needs to move out & let the rest of the state go broke.
Sen. Steinberg said that the guns used in Sandy Hook were legally purchased, but they were not they were stolen from the guns owner after shooting her.

California has 53 Congressional districts. 53 representatives with the authority to vote on legislation that will have binding effect on you and me. And you want gun owners to retreat from California?

How about New York? Should we concede their 29 Congressional districts to anti-gunners?

How about the 19 Congressional districts of Illinois?

What we need to do is send our support there. Those of us in solidly pro-gun states need to support those who are on the front lines of the battle. It's not enough anymore to simply join the NRA and expect them to do everything for us. The NRA is simply ineffective in California, New York, Illinois, and the few other rigidly anti-gun states. They don't have the tools or the talents to successfully operate in these states. The NRA's heavy Republican position makes it easy for them to be ignored in these Democratic states.

We need to lend our support to our brethren. We need to take the fight to our enemies, fight them on their ground so we don't have to fight them here at home.

What we need to support are pro-gun organizations that can successfully operate in these states. Organizations that can make a Democratic pro-gun argument to Democrats in these states.

Join the Firearms Policy Coalition. This is a fairly new organization currently comprised of 2 respected national level organizations (Second Amendment Foundation and Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms) and 8 state-level organizations.

You can join FPC and one of its member organizations for just $15. If you join only one, I recommend SAF. If you've got $50 to put towards gun rights, I'd suggest joining SAF and CCRKBA ($30) and donating $4 each to CalGuns, Comm2A, HDF, IC, and NJ2AS.


I would also recommend donate to NYRSPA, the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association.

Some liberals (my biased opinion) from the city bought some acreage in my area and proceeded to raise some sheep. They failed to add a donkey or a llama to protect the sheep and stray dogs (collarless and semi-feral) began to kill sheep. They killed a few dogs and the humane society fined them $10 for each dog killed ( I don?t know why they involved the humane society). Then they brought it before the county commissioners a who had an open meeting for discussion. The outcome was that public opinion was ignored and a county wide dog registration (revenue?) and leash law was invoked. I asked the chairman of the board of commissioners how its action was going to benefit the sheep, his reply, ?We had to do something?. I see a similarity between the board?s act of frustration and the current gun control frenzy.
